Toadman’s Toad Racing: A Quirky and Charitable Spectacle in Tamborine

Toad Racing at Bearded Dragon Hotel, Tamborine

In the picturesque hills of Tamborine, an unexpected hero has emerged to aid the Rural Fire Brigade – the infamous Cane Toad! Known as Toadman, a local and always eccentric larrikin, has turned the tables on these pesky pests by wrangling and racing them for a charitable cause. Surprisingly, the much-hated toads recently helped raise over $1500 for the local charity.

Toadman’s Creative Charitable Endeavours

Toadman’s creativity and PG banter at Bearded Dragon Hotel’s annual Australia Day Shindig saw another cracker Aussie event brimming with cash prizes and laughs. For those brave enough to collect these ugly brown critters in advance and enjoy the fun of the race, it was an unforgettable experience. However, Toadman faced an unexpected hurdle in his toad racing endeavours – a severe shortage of jockeys due to Australia’s ongoing staff crisis. Even Centrelink couldn’t help; they were closed for the day.

Overcoming Staffing Challenges

Despite the staffing challenges, Toadman and his team at Bearded Dragon Hotel persevered and delivered a Cane Toad Racing Calcutta to impress the crowds. Big thanks to the community who rallied together, passionately hunting for toads on chilly nights, turning it into an unexpectedly popular Saturday evening activity followed by cool refreshing beverages.

The Impact on Tamborine Community

The Cane Toad Racing Calcutta has not only raised substantial funds for charity over the 27 years but has also brought laughter and camaraderie to the Tamborine community. Toadman’s initiative turned an ecological nuisance into a quirky and charitable spectacle. Who knew those ugly toads could contribute to such a toadally awesome cause!
